    After Hamid (Hootan Shakiba) and Faezeh (Elnaz Shakerdust) marry, red flags about Hamid’s family immediately surface: there are indications of suspicious activity within the family, and Hamid soon forces his wife and child to move out of the country. Based on real events, this intense drama traces Faezeh’s harrowing journey from sheltered daughter to loving wife and mother to terrified prisoner of her husband and in-laws. Winner of Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress at the 2019 Fajr Film Festival. It also won the audience award at Estonia's Tallin Black Nights Film Festival in December.
